Bat Survey Surrey £329 – Report in 3 working days
In Surrey, if you are making a planning application to develop land or buildings then your local planning authority will require a Protected Species Survey assessment which considers the potential impact of your planning application upon local habitats and or legally protected species e.g. Bats. Your local planning authority is also likely to consult Surrey Wildlife Trust before you receive a planning decision, about ecological impacts at your site of proposed development. For further information on planning and biodiversity regulations, see the Surrey County Council web site.

A Bat Survey is an important part of your application as PPS9 and ODPM Circular 2006/05 require that survey effort is undertaken prior to your application being determined. This is so that species which are legally protected under e.g. the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 or Habitats Regulations 2010 can be identified if they are likely to be “present and affected.” Where appropriate, further survey work will be recommended in your survey report’s recommendations, which is unique to the nature and extent of your site of proposed development.
Does your Surrey planning application require a bat survey?
Planning applications are considered alongside the reports resulting from bat surveys (and sometimes phase 1 habitat surveys), however some cases require an ecological report to form part of the planning conditions where this relates to Code for Sustainable Homes assessments. No matter what your case requires, our helpful and pragmatic ecological consultants can provide an initial consultation, free of charge, to determine the likely implications for cost and time scales.
If you would like a friendly and informative discussion about bats, habitat or ecology surveys at your site why not contact one of our Surrey based ecology consultants?
